Eli Manning

The Giants have a goal set for Eli Manning. 70% completion rate. That’s only been achieved by six quarterbacks before. This is insane given that Eli’s career completion percentage is 58.5% and his highest ever completion rate is 62.9%. What people are forgetting is that if you count Eli’s passes to the other team (27) he almost reached the 70% goal.

Here are the previous quarterbacks
